Hi stillearning,stilllearning said:Hi Ramoncio,ramoncio said:Did you install Avantfax using a rpm? Try to uninstall it first.
rpm -qa |grep avantfax
rpm -e --nodeps elastix-avantfax
And then try to install it again.
Thankyou for the prompt reply, that has now fixed the issue and I can now login ok. Wonder what went wrong, just one more issue I have, when I get a inbound fax I dont recieve an email with it.
Looking at cli this is part of the log where I see an error..
-- Executing [s@ext-fax:4] RxFAX("SIP/myvsp-0000000f", "/var/spool/aster
-- Cannot open target TIFF file '/var/spool/asterisk/fax/1270969368.15.tif'
[FaxReceived ERROR] result (41) TIFF/F file cannot be opened.
For some unknown reason I dont have a folder called "fax" in /var/spool/asterisk so nothing is happening any ideas..
I had to create a directory called "fax" in /var/spool/asterisk and now I could recieve inbound faxes which are emailed to me , but when I login into Avantfax my inbox is empty.
This means you are using asterisk's RxFAX and not the iaxmodems for receiving faxes.
You will need to configure in your inbound routes the proper fax detection (if you need it) and the proper iax2 fax extension as destination.
